Summary of Season 1 (2007) - 3 discs

When things go bump in the night, you can't really call the Ghostbusters. But you could call the student-run Paranormal Research Society at Penn State University to figure out whether your haunting is real or just a hoax.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this eerie reality series explores alleged paranormal activity affecting both children and adults. The discussions about ghosts, demons, and the occult may be frightening for young kids (and those who just get freaked out by that sort of thing). Expect some use of language like "damn" and "hell" (stronger words are bleeped). The show includes footage of Christian rituals like prayer, sprinkling holy water, and exorcisms.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


Discussions about people being murdered and their spirits coming back. Descriptions of violent acts performed by angry spirits and demons. Very creepy tone overall.


Words like "damn" and "hell" are audible; stronger words are bleeped.

Social Behavior

The series is more creepy than educational and focuses heavily on evil and demonic possession. Buell isn't an ordained minister or therapist but considers himself to be a "warrior" against spirits. Team members have various religious backgrounds, but many Christian rituals are shown. One team member is an occultist. PRS members are Caucasian men and women.
